IT’S IN THE BAG

To celebrate the launch of our new capsule collection with Lost & Found, we’re attempting to take Da Bus on a road trip to LA, starting tomorrow. Why? Lost & Found is based on the spirit of '70s surf culture, and we figured it doesn't get much more old-school than a barely-functioning VW bus.

Also, we needed a cheap way to get down there in time for Friday, which is when we're hosting a launch party for the L&F collab at our Venice store. 

(Here's a link to RSVP, if you're around)

 So who's even going on this road trip?

Doug "Always Aloha" Walker, Founder of Lost & Found

Ben Bloom, ML Creative Director, Bus Wrangler

Julia Toro, ML Copywriter with a high tolerance for gas poisoning, we assume

 

What are you guys gonna do on the way down?
